Will a leak cause the radiator fan relay curcuit to malfunction on a 2003 jeep liberty 3.7


a leak in coolant system will cause air pocket in the coolant system around the engine coolant temperature sensor.coolant sensor is a thermistor in which when hot cool cause it resistance decrease which affect the voltage from sensor to pcm which will cause engine coolant to turn on.if coolant level okay,check coolant fan fuse and relay, if all is good,engine coolant temperature sensor could be bad or have vechicle code scan for pcm problems it control the coolant fan.fill coolant system to correct level make sure engine coolat reservoir is at full cold mark and not empty.fill coolant system check for leaks,refill coolant overflow jug back to full cold mark dont over fill, if coolant overflow stay empty you have leak either its leaking or you have radiator hoses or radiator leaking coolant.when coolant overflow jug run dry it cause air get in coolant system causing overheating problems.

Yes it is a problem, you can have a waterpump that leaks as the engine runs, when the vehicle warms up coolant expands and goes to the resovoir,as you turn the engine off and the engine cools off the fluid in the resovoir reutns to the engine but here the problem the radiator cap cant do its job when the water pump leaks

1998 VW Passat 4 cylinder keeps overheating I fill the resovoir with coolant and few short trips is empty again and overheating. No apparent leaks. Checked the oil levels-normal levels w/ no water. No...


Replace the theremostat first.Fill system and top off after the themostat opens..check for a leaking reservoir, Then fill the radiator,if it is low,with engine running. then, pressure check the cap with a tester,or just replace with a new one,it may be cheaper just to buy a new cap. Look at the fill neck of the radiator down where the cap seals,look for any uneven sealing surfaces cracks ect.
You can also load the car in gear Automatic transmission application a bit, about 1/3 throttle, with the cap off and look for bubbles comming out of the radiator.fill the radiator while making the test with a helper,friend. If you see a bubble now and then it may be a bad head gasket or a cracked head. You can remove the plugs, and check them for anti freeze,they will have a smell of sweet antifreez,if the engine got over heated enough!

You have a leak in the radiator and it's not holding coolant. The coolant is evaporating through this leak and is causing the car to overheat. It doesn't matter how much you fill the radiator it will not hold any coolant/water until the radiator is repaired. Good Luck!!!

Coolant runs down the frame rail on the passengers side. I do not see any leaks from the radiator, water pump, and radiator hoses. Since the leak is under the coolant reservoir, my quess is something...


First, is the operating temp normal? Have you looked carefully to see if the leak is visible after you turn the engine off after a drive? Have you lost coolant? Have you checked to make sure it is actually coolant and not condensation from the air conditioner (normal)? If you verify coolant (green), then remove the bottle and fill it with water. If it's leaking, common or not, you need to replace it. (generally inexpensive at any scrapyard)

96 suzuki vitara - radiator empties but no visible leak


Check the passanger side floor board for moisture this could indicate a bad heater core. Then I would check the engine oil and make sure its not milky looking (head gasket). make sure when you fill it let it run with the cap open with you looking into the cap to be sure is circulating and not vapor locked (air pocket)
hope this helps
